“I will turn 71 in February of this year and am still working. I have an IRA and a 401(k) plan through my current employer. Since I am still working, I don’t need the money from the required minimum distributions. With the Secure Act changing the age limit to 72 for required minimum distributions, do I not need to take my RMD for this year now?

12/7/19 - Are Your Gifts Valuable?
With the cold weather, all the holiday decorations out at the stores, and the Christmas music on the radio, we are now in the Christmas and holiday gift-giving season. So let me ask you – are the gifts you give meaningful, and do they provide value for a long period of time? It is December, and that means the gift-giving season is now officially here. Over the next several weeks many gifts will be given and received. The problem with this, however, is that each year many gifts are given, received and forgotten about soon after with no real meaning or lifetime value. This truly is a shame. Fortunately though, it does not have to be this way.
